Biden submits early vote in Delaware ahead of November midterms



WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – US President Joe Biden, who turns 80 next month, cast an early vote in the midterm elections.

Biden voted Saturday in Wilmington, in his home state of Delaware, alongside his 18-year-old granddaughter, Natalie Biden, according to CBS. Natalie Biden was voting for the first time.

“I’m going to spend the rest of the time arguing that this is not a referendum. This is a choice. A fundamental choice,” Biden said, as quoted by NBC. “A choice between two very different visions for the country.”

The president further told reporters that he feels good about the upcoming midterm cycle, which will effectively determine which political party will take control of Congress.

Earlier this week, data from the US Elections Project showed that more than 7.8 million Americans voted early in the US midterm elections, surpassing the record set in the midterm elections. of 2018 and in previous elections.

U.S. voters head to the polls on November 8 to vote in the midterm elections, with the Democratic Party’s tight control of Congress hanging in the balance. 34 of the U.S. Senate’s 100 seats — and all 435 House seats — are in election this year, in addition to statewide and local positions.
